A workout can be incredibly rewarding, but we all have our favorite, go-to exercises. Here are a few of our FitCoach favorites for upper and lower body workouts you can add to your SmartTrainer routine.
Lunges – targets the hamstring muscle which is one of the weakest muscles in the body. Walking lunges are better than in place; add hand weights for more resistance.
Bridges – targets glutes and hamstrings. Lay on back, with knees in air. Lift bottom off the ground and contract the glute muscles. Hold in place or do multiple reps.
Squat jumps – targets glutes, quads, and calves
Kickbacks – targets upper glutes and hamstrings
Jumping jacks – works overall body
Arm raises (front and to the side) – works the shoulders
Crunches with ball
